Strategy & commitments

Our strategy, “The Partner for Sustainable Change,” aims to bridge our expertise with society’s needs and clients’ demands.

Strategy Launch 2022 for employees
It is shaped by four unifying sustainability themes: Decarbonising for net zero, Resilient societies and liveability, Resource management and circular economy, and Biodiversity and ecosystems.
We have aligned our portfolio and operations with the unifying themes and translated them into eight building blocks of our strategy. Below, we report on the strategy highlights from 2023.

All in on sustainability

We continue to progress on our strategic ambition to become the global industry leader in the green energy transition, which is demonstrated by our growing portfolio of energy projects, particularly within Power-to-X, electrical grid upgrades, and offshore substations for windfarms.
Biodiversity and nature net positive impacts are rapidly growing areas of interest for our clients, driven by increasingly tough regulatory frameworks. We began consolidating our biodiversity offering to clients and have organised internally to accelerate this work in 2024 and onwards.
We have further organised the way we approach sustainability across our systems and processes, as well as upskilled our employees with knowledge and skills to provide a palette of sustainability solutions and best practices in our work with clients.

Grow key clients

We strengthened relationships with key clients, collaborating on joint sustainability goals, and nurturing long-term partnerships. Being a valued partner for our clients is key to our success - and 90% of respondents in our Client Loyalty Survey see us as a trusted partner.
We worked with clients to drive change at a large scale. For example, we are collaborating with Statnett, the national transmission system operator in Norway, to expand the country’s electrical grid and support its renewable energy transition. We also established a long-term partnership with Austrian utility company Wien Energie, to help decarbonise Vienna’s energy supply and meet the company’s net-zero emissions target by 2040.

Double down on our geographical strongholds

We are working with several groundbreaking projects in the Nordic region, for example low-carbon light rail projects in Finland and Norway, and enabling large scale Power-to-X initiatives in Sweden and Finland.
In Denmark, we are supporting the development of high-tech laboratory facilities for the Novo Nordisk Foundation. Lastly, our Asia Pacific geography was fully integrated into the Ramboll brand, helping us better meet regional client needs across major markets. For example, we play a key role in delivering the Lim Chu Kang agricultural food cluster in Singapore.

Differentiate in the value chain

To enhance our capabilities, we acquired consulting firms civity and acondas in Germany, which will further strengthen our strategic management and sustainability consulting offering.
Furthermore, we launched Ramboll’s Thought Leadership programme to share our insights and expertise across disciplines and geographies with the aim of driving transformation across industries. In this Report, some of our 87 thought leaders share their expert insights on sustainability topics critical to the sectors we operate in.

Develop people and reinforce our culture

We continued to focus on fostering equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) across our organisation, including through the topic of allyship.
We also continued to embed sustainability training as a core element of employee development and upskilling through our Sustainability Learning Universe, providing employees with the knowledge and tools to drive sustainability in client projects.

Scale innovation at the core and accelerate digital transformation

We invested in our digital competencies to further strengthen our technology-enabled consultancy offerings. We established a dedicated digitalisation and innovation organisation to scale technology, enhance innovation, and bring new tools and insights to clients even faster.
We also established a strategy for use of artificial intelligence technologies to enhance efficiencies and facilitate continuous learning.

Act responsibly

We took another step on our decarbonisation journey and committed to reach net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across scopes 1, 2, and 3 by 2040 from a 2019 baseline, through new targets submitted to the Science Based Targets initiative.
In line with our strategy, we are also gradually redeploying our oil and gas experts to serve the growing need for renewable energy and low-carbon solutions.
